Sunny Sadie - January 30th, 2017

I didn't see either Washington Square Park Red-tailed Hawk during the first 40 minutes of my meander through the park and surrounding blocks today.

A fellow Hawk-watcher had seen Sadie visit the nest, eat some pigeon leftovers on the park arch, and rest in a tree earlier in the day. They also saw Bobby which was excellent.

I was a block south of the park when I saw Sadie flapping her giant wings as she landed on One Fifth Avenue:




I watched Sadie have her sun bath for close to 40 minutes before I tore myself away from her. There was always a chance she'd fly to a new perch or that Bobby would arrive but it was not to be this time.
